Prosze mi podac ile potzebuje welny? 200 g to raczej malo . Dziekuje .

DROPS Design 18.05.2018 kl. 20:26:

Witaj Ireno! Wystarczy tyle włóczki ile jest podane we wzorze. To bardzo lekka i wydajna włóczka. Dodatkowo sweter jest wykonywany na drutach nr 8. Powodzenia!

Bij benodigdheden staat als garen alleen Drops Melody Toch staat het volgende bij de beschrijving van de mouw: "Zet 26-26-26-32-32-32 st op (incl. 1 kant st aan elke kant) met rondbreinld 8 mm en 2 draden Brushed Alpaca Silk" Klopt dit of moet het Melody zijn?

DROPS Design 24.11.2016 kl. 11:35:

Hoi Rianne. Dat is een foutje in de vertaling. Het moet DROPS Melody zijn zoals er staat in de kop. Ik zal het aanpassen.

Do you have any patterns on straight needles? l

DROPS Design 04.07.2016 kl. 10:42:

Dear Mrs Beecroft, this pattern is worked back and forth on circular needle to get enough room for all sts. You can then use straight needle, just remember to keep your tension. Read more about circular needles/straight needles here. Happy knitting!

Kaz 05.03.2016 - 17:43:

Hi , Could you explain please why there is a difference in length before armhole shaping from the front and back piece please !

DROPS Design 05.03.2016 kl. 18:28:

Dear Mrs Kaz, back piece is longer than front piece (back piece = 53-63 cm and front piece = 48-58 cm), that's why you will cast on sts for armholes at a different height. Happy knitting!

Danke für die schnelle Antwort. Ich stricke definitiv kraus rechts. Und 1,5 x glatt rechts wären vielleicht 18 Reihen, keine 23... Es wird nicht besser mit der Maschenprobe, obwohl ich die Versuche nun wiederholt habe. Irgendwas scheint da unrealistisch bemessen zu sein :(( Können Sie noch eine andere Idee? Danke im Voraus

DROPS Design 01.03.2016 kl. 09:05:

Liebe Gosia, ich werde die Maschenprobe prüfen und melde mich hier wieder.

Gosia 28.02.2016 - 10:44:

Ich habe ein Problem mit der Maschenprobe - ich stricke mit DROPS Melody. Für 11 M x 23 R kraus re. bin ich mittlerweile bei der Nadelstärke 3 angekommen (Nadel 8 hat die Länge von 17 cm ergeben; die Breite klappt immer) - das Maschenbild wird dann aber nicht annähernd dem Foto entsprechen. Bei "Summer Melody" hat die Maschenprobe (12 R, Nadel 9) perfekt geklappt. Ich vermute einen Fehler in der Anleitung für dieses Model - oder mache ich was falsch?

DROPS Design 29.02.2016 kl. 15:29:

Liebe Gosia, haben Sie bei der Maschenprobe wirklich kraus rechts gestrickt wie angegeben? Bei kraus rechts braucht man etwa 1.5 x so viele Reihen in der Höhe wie bei glatt rechts. Die beschriebene Situation (Breite stimmt, Länge nicht) klingt etwas danach.

Skvělý návod pro začátečníky :) Upletený svetr je efektní.
